Cafting with Kids, Community Service Projects

Missed Opportunity

I’ve thought since I began quilting – can it really be more than 11 years – that there could be nothing better that to help someone learn how to quilt.  Well that opportunity presented itself when the director of the Seals Community Center asked the members of the Thumbstall Quilt Guild to work with some of the girls as they made a quilt.   Thirteen girls completed 2 blocks each  (one fusible applique block and  one 9-patch block).


On Monday we finished piecing and pin-basting two quilts.  I think the looks on the faces of these girls as they hold up their  quilts tells it all.

{I am remiss in not posting about this project from the beginning – but will hopefully rectify that by taking you on the journey in reverse. ) 

I’d really like to hear from you and any community outreach programs that you or members of your guild have done recently  We are constantly looking for new ways to give back to the community.  What better way than teaching someone how to quilt?

There is always time to quilt!
